François Hollande (born the 12 August 1954 in Rouen) is the current President of the French Republic. A former university teacher, he is a member of the French Socialist Party. Hollande attended the prestigious HEC Paris, École Nationale d'Administration and "Sciences Po". François Mitterrand was considered his mentor; Hollande worked for him as economic adviser.
"He is a very magnetic man," said The Tulle mayor Bernard Combes, 52, "He is luminous, loyal , kind, and has a brilliant intellect combined with endless goodwill. In short, he's a lovely person, someone you really want to work for. Of course, he's a human being and I'm sure he has some faults, but not so many, and to be honest I'd have difficulty finding one to tell you." 
Hollande has four children (born out of wedlock) by Ségolène Royal, his former partner for more than 30 years.
